La Candelaria is the center of theatre in Bogotá. Walk up almost any street and you’ll pass by some of the many small, charming theatres, most of them operated by residents of the neighborhood and students from the many nearby universities. Admission is usually only a few thousand pesos. If you don’t understand enough Spanish to appreciate the dialogue, the theatres are also worth visiting for their architecture and colorful, artsy decoration. Just within blocks of Bogotá Bike Tours, there a half-a-dozen theatres!

A wonderful outdoor amphitheater located on the Circunvular Ave., high above Bogotá. Lots of free concerts here, most of them Colombian folk music, but classical and rock music as well. Easiest access is the alley between Las Torres del Jimenez and La Universidad de los Andes. For a great view of both the amphitheater and the city, you can also sit on the grassy hill above the avenue.
